Ep 154: Big News! Drama of the Past, The Art of Not Trying so Hard and Korean Soaps!

This week I get super deep after suffering a cold in bed (inferior immune system = weakness) and watch so many great TV shows. The wisdom of Korean Soap Operas and "This is Us". Why is it that the more we want something, the more it eludes us? Also, how to get over your own story and start living in the present! I answer some emails  - a wife is sick and tired of making her husband's sandwiches and wonders if she's being his mom. A young man wonders if he should give up on his dream. A guy writes in with a fetish he's really ashamed of. Should he be? All this and more! Let's get our lives and get super deep, bros. 

Here's the therapy resource I mentioned on today's episode. A state by state list of affordable mental health care:

Ep 147: Getting the F*ck out of Your Comfort Zone

This episode I talk about how the only way to get anywhere is to do stuff you don't feel comfortable doing. How do we do that?? Also, why does every self help guru talk about "doing what you love"?

Another emailer asks if I've ever felt isolated from friends. Also, should a 19 year-old girl with so much going on start a podcast? What if her friends laugh at her? All this and more.
